    Question Carrying in a bank

    Hi! I am new to the forum and would like to ask some of you for your opinions. I just got my CCW permit and would like to carry at work. The problem is finding the right way to carry and still have it concealed where I work. I work at a bank and the dress code is pretty much white shirt and tie. No suitcoat or anything like that. I have an Inside the waistband holster that I like to use normally, but it would be visible at work.

    If any of you are in similar situations, what do you use or how do you carry concealed? I would most likely be carrying a single stack .380.

    First off -



    There are many options and we must assume here you are not debarred from carry at work. Small .380 is a definite possibility to consider and possibly pocket carry for best.

    We have many threads on concealment and a good search should turn some up for you - many aspects.

    Welcome from Rocky Top Tennessee. You might want to think about pocket carry.

    Welcome!

    Assuming you are not barred from carrying on the job, I would think that pocket carry would be the quickest to bring into action in an emergency.

    Another vote for pocket carry, BTW.

    I dunno, but hello from NE KS. If you are stationary for the most part, perhaps a defense planner at your work station would work.

    Welcome from SE Missouri. Kel-Tec P3AT (.380) will almost disappear in most pockets with a good holster.
